- By participating in simulation, first semester nursing students’
lowered their anxiety level compared to first semester students’

- First semester students valued high-fidelity simulation as an equal
learning experience as traditional hospital clinical. However, they
did not value low-fidelity simulation as an equal learning experience
as traditional hospital.
- Simulation research has been conducted and the data is being analyzed
for simulation use in the fifth semester leadership course when students
care for 4 simulated patients at one time to learn how to delegate,
prioritize, and communicate as a team. Students comment this simulation
is one of the most valuable experiences at AUSON.
- Third semester students valued the mid-point debriefing or partial
